Description

From the Book

Amar Chitra Katha is a collection of illustrated classics that retell stories from Indian mythology, history, folktale and legend through the fascinating medium of comics. Over 430 stories from all over India have been told in this series that has been endorsed by educationists and recommended by teachers the world over.

Through a masterful blend of commentary, dialogue and illustration, Amar Chitra Katha presents complex historical facts and intricate mythology in a format that would appeal to children. They not only entertain, but also provide a fitting introduction to the cultural heritage of India. In a country so vast and varied, the series also serves as a medium for national integration, by introducing young readers to the rich cultural diversity of the country and highlighting the achievements of local heroes.

Amar Chitra Katha comics are like family heirlooms, passed down from generation to generation.

Back of the Book

In Hindu mythology, Yayati, the son of Nahusha, is depicted as one of the wisest and noblest rulers of the time. Such was his knowledge that even Indra, king of the celestials, held him in great esteem. His encounter with Devayani, the daughter of Shukracharya, and later with Sharmishtha, the asura princess, is one of the most romantic episodes of the Mahabharata. it is significant that women in those days enjoyed the right to choose the man they wanted to marry, a right that Devayani exercised when she chose Yayati.

Yayati found wisdom the hard way. Though the study of the scriptures undoubtedly moulded his character, he learnt the truth of their maxims only by his own experiences. The scriptures uphold restraint and self-control as the prerequisites of self-realisation. With experience, Yayati realized that happiness, peace of mind and contentment elude those who make no effort at self-control in the misguided belief that cravings of the body run themselves out in the course of time.

In portraying the characters of this tale from the Mahabharata, this Amar Chitra Katha has deviated slightly from the original for its young readers.

The best and fastest service worldwide - I am in Australia and I put in a big order of books (14 items) on a Wednesday; it was sent on Friday and arrived at my doorstep early on Monday morning - amazing! All very securely packed in a very strong cardboard box. I have bought several times from Exotic India and the service is always exceptionally good. THANK YOU and NAMASTE!

Carl, UK.
I wanted to let you know how happy we are with our framed pieces of Shree Durga and Shree Kali. Thank you and thank your framers for us. By the way, this month we offered a Puja and Yagna to the Ardhanarishwara murti we purchased from you last November. The Brahmin priest, Shree Vivek Godbol, who was visiting LA preformed the rites. He really loved our murti and thought it very paka. I am so happy to have found your site , it is very paka and trustworthy. Plus such great packing and quick shipping. Thanks for your service Vipin, it is a pleasure.
Gina, USA
